So I recently moved and beforehand I removed all of the paper sleeves from the outer sleeves of my collection to keep them from splitting the spines during shipping. Now that I am settled in I have been contemplating wether or not I should placed them back in and have been reading mixed opinions online about doing so. Any one have an opinion or insight?

Curious as to how everyone does it.

I leave them out to prevent ring wear.

I put them all back in a few years ago when i noticed pretty harsh colapsing of the spines, and i still got ring indentations.
but, your talking alot of wait and pressure over time.

They are going to wear one way or another over time..

Definitely sleeve, but whole record also in a thick PVC sleeve.
If you are careful when removing/replacing the record from the inner sleeve, this is no reason why you should get any seam splits. Ringwear is probably MORE likely if you keep the record outside of the sleeve as well, due to pressure from other records.

To me it seems that ringwear occurs from the inside out

I started storing outside more for the fact that some of the gatefold covers, etc fit in protective sleeves rather snug, and over time it has a tendency to wear at the edges and corners with successive plays. much less handling of the covers now if I store the LP itself in the back

It'll happen either way, you can't escape it on a record.

You guys are way too obsessed about the condition of your OOP wynil. It's a lost battle really, sooner or later all of them will deteriorate to some extent no matter how nitpicky you decide to be. I'm not saying you should have breakfast and shave your moustache on your Flames of Hell "Fire and steel" lp but come on, enjoy your records and don't panic over the occasional seam split, it's a part of the game. I know people who collect art worth thousands of $$$ and they're far less obnoxiously zealous about it than some of you.

I keep LPs in the sleeves mostly because I'd rather keep the vinyl in great shape than the cover. About half of my records have typical protective sleeves; the rest are piled pretty loosely into crates, and my overall policy is "try not to step on the fucking things."

it's also immensely easier to store records outside of the jacket for listening purposes. That way every time you want to listen to a record you don't have to remove the jacket from the poly sleeve, fiddle with removing the paper sleeves from the jacket which half the time never fits correctly anyways, try and jam the paper sleeve and vinyl back into the jacket after you're done. It's just a massive pain in the ass.

Yeah you're right. It's so time consuming.
